Event details

The tournament season begins in Settmour Swamp!
Duke Brennan and Duchess Caoilfhionn present their Ducal Challenge.  This will feature prize tournaments for both armored and rapier combatants.

MoL Check-In for both armored and rapier lists closes at noon, with tournaments to begin shortly after.

Each combatant will furnish, as entry price, a prize that showcases their art or that they have commissioned for the purpose of entering the tournament.

The tournaments will be fought in 4 round robin pools, with each pool advancing 4 combatants.  The top 16 combatants will then fight a double elimination tournament down to the semifinals.  The finals will be fought with rotating weapons forms.

The winner of the tournament will have first pick of the prizes for that tournament.  The second prize pick will go to the artist who created the first prize picked, and so on until all prizes are disseminated.

We encourage you to make something that shows off your skills or partner with another artist to showcase theirs.  This is an excellent opportunity to learn a new skill or get to know an artist!
